Ophthalmic Research and Innovation at NYEE

Today, more than ever, the pace of scientific research and innovation is the fastest it has ever been, and it requires full commitment, collaborative research, and clinical excellence. New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai (NYEE) is helping to shape the future treatment and diagnosis of complex eye diseases through the work of a growing team of world-renowned researchers and clinicians at downtown and uptown campuses in Manhattan. Our ability to capitalize on the vast clinical resources of the Mount Sinai Health System, and the research infrastructure of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, allows NYEE specialists greater freedom to purse big ideas, challenge conventional wisdoms, and speed the pace of discovery.

There are three programs helping NYEE advance its pioneering work in the fields of cutting-edge ocular imaging, treatment breakthroughs, new surgical devices, and genetics and genomics of eye disease:

Together, these programs allow NYEE to engage in a 360-degree approach to visual science—taking the work from the lab to clinical investigation, and closing the loop with product development to bring cures, novel treatments, and products directly to patients.
